Ejura: Two arrested over killing of social media activist

Police in the Ashanti Region have arrested two persons in connection with the killing of Ibrahim Muhammed, 35, a popular social activist in Ejura also known as Kaaka.

The suspects have been identified as Ibrahim Isaka and Fuseini Alhassan.

 

Both suspects were arrested at about 10:45 pm on Monday, 28th June 2021, following police intelligence, ASP Godwin Ahianyo, the Ashanti Regional Police Public Relations Officer has announced.

According to police, witness accounts show that Ibrahim Muhammed was ambushed in front of his house when he was returning home on his motorbike at about 1:30 am on Sunday, 27th June 2021.

He was subsequently rushed to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in Kumasi where he was put on oxygen until he passed Monday afternoon.

Ibrahim Muhammed was noted to be a known voice on both local and national issues using his Facebook page.

Unconfirmed reports suggest he’s a member of the Economic Fighters League and recently the #FixTheCountry movement.

Earlier threats to his life were reported to the police but no action has yet been taken, reports say.

A statement by the protest group said the Police rather warned the deceased to be cautious of his utterances which were deemed to be making the government unpopular.
